... "Don't call the Live Free or Die state a copycat, though--the New Hampshire bill contains a very interesting provision not (to my knowledge) seen in any of the other states' legislation."
"Any official, agent, or employee of the government of the United States, ... that enforces or attempts to enforce a act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in New Hampshire and that remains within the State of New Hampshire shall be guilty of a class B felony.

New Years gun rights resolution: last installment

"With today being New Year's Day, it will be the last installment in the Examiner Special Project regarding New Years resolutions pertaining to gun rights. As a result, I could not resist suggesting more than one! First, try out a rifle at long range! Most people never stretch their rifle's legs beyond 100 or 200 yards. If you have never tried it, you will soon discover that 300 to 500 yards is a lot farther in real life than it is on the internet. The original idea behind the NRA was to develop a nation of marksmen, but today the art of long range marksmanship is sadly neglected. Resolve for 2010 to find a shooting range with several hundred yards available ... pack up the rifle and ammunition, and go shoot! ..." ...

... "The argument seems to boil down to if peaceable armed citizens cross certain property lines, our behavior changes. We degenerate into hot-tempered, conscienceless, out-of-control binge-drinking frat boys and drunken cowboys, ready to blast for any reason--or for no reason at all. Oh, and avenging vigilantes...that's what the antis are calling self-defense these days, isn't it?" ...

"Let's start with those of you are just thinkin' about it. Here are a few suggested resolutions for you:"

"1. Resolve to decide early in 2010 whether or not you are going to take personal responsibility for yourself and your family, whether at home or away. When the barbarians are at the gate, will you be prepared to defend the castle until the cavalry arrive (in nine or ten minutes)?"

"2. If you resolve to defend the castle, then the next thing is to determine what measures to take, between minimal and extreme. Do you have good locks on the doors? What about an alarm? Is it monitored? Do you and your neighbors watch out for each other? Are you prepared for a home invasion, of which we have seen too many of lately? ..." ...

"Chiappa Firearms debuts a new production revolver and concept at the MKS Supply 2010 SHOT Show display ..."

"Called the Rhino ... you will first notice that the barrel is actually at the bottom of the cylinder. The gun is designed to fire from the bottom chamber of the cylinder ..."

"The new design resulted in improvements of the internal mechanisms over conventional revolver designs yielding up incredible reliability, a super-smooth action and improved safety."

"The Rhino’s low barrel design ergonomically shifts recoil energy into the center of the palm of the hand and in line with the forearm thus greatly reducing the effects of felt recoil. Traditional revolver design (semi-autos too) place the barrel above the hand." ...

... "The Second Amendment ... does not exist to stop what the writer calls 'current tyranny.' The idea that 'Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun' was uttered by Mao, not the Founding Fathers."

"The mechanism to redress the citizenry's disagreements with their government lies in the system of elections prescribed in the Constitution itself and in the First Amendment ... not in the whim of armed militants and fanatics." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: So what do you do when the Federal gov't ignores both elections and the Constitution? Just as an example, Californians duly elected representatives passed medicinal marijuana laws, only to have the Feds enforce their drug laws. As for the First Amendment, does the phrase "free speech zones" ring any bells?

"Extremist 'patriot' groups and other armed militias have undergone a dramatic resurgence in America, their numbers more than doubling in the past year amid growing Right-wing fears over expanding federal power and gun control."

"Such groups – a mix of libertarians, gun rights advocates and survivalists – appeared to be in terminal decline before the election of Barack Obama, according to monitoring bodies."

"The Southern Poverty Law Centre, which tracks extremist organisations, says it has so far counted more than 300 patriot groups this year ..." ...

Pandering to Gun Owners

"As a citizen and voter, I expect a minimum level of common sense and pragmatism from the people elected to represent me. After so many years of bitter disappointment, I have no idea why."

"For example, my home state of Oklahoma has the dubious honor of having the largest state budget deficit in the nation[sic]. A reasonable person might assume our elected representatives are at this very minute hard at work trying to solve this urgent problem. A reasonable person would be wrong."

"Two Democratic state lawmakers want a sales tax holiday on the purchase of guns. ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: As a reader of 'news' stories, I expect a minimum level of sense and truthfulness from journalists. After so many years of bitter disappointment, I have no idea why. The CA budget deficit is more than five and a half times OK's entire budget, so OK's deficit can hardly be largest in the nation.
 

NC: Charleston's ABC News 4 gets it wrong on 'assault weapons'

"Media inaccuracy on gun-related issues stems occasionally from ignorance, often from deliberate attempts to mislead the public. In either case, the result is increased public support for gun control measures based on misinformation. (Or, some would say, 'disinformation.')"

"Which is the case in a report by ABC News 4 of Charleston, SC entitled 'Group of Tough Crime Bills Head to State House,' you can decide for yourself. At issue is pending legislation on what the station calls, 'high powered' guns they insist are 'assault weapons.'" ...

"In the last three installments of the Chicago Gun Rights Examiner, we've examined new, more onerous restrictions on military personnel who own 'privately-owned firearms' while serving at Fort Hood in Texas. Today, in the final installment of the series, it's time to answer the most relevant question that the criticisms of Fort Hood's restrictive new firearm policies leave unanswered:"
So registration and regulations won't work? Fine--what measures would stop 'the next Hassan'?"
As many reader comments seem to suggest, targeting specific weapons a terrorist might use is guaranteed to fail over time. ..." ...

"Our media and the cinema continue to portray FBI agents and most federal investigators as being brilliant crime solvers when, in reality, decades of bullying and immunity have turned these agents into bullying, incompetent jerks. We should not be surprised at all at what Kurt Haskell has written about the FBI 'investigation' of the underwear bomber. Likewise, we see the incompetence demonstrated by TSA 'investigators' when they went after a blogger who posted some new TSA screening directives."

"Contrary to the nonsense from the U.S. Supreme Court about the growing 'professionalism' of the police and FBI, in reality, what has been happening is that as police powers increase, they are able to get their way by sheer bullying ..." ...

"A South Carolina coastal city has suspended its top police officer after concluding he lied about how his gun was stolen."

"Multiple media outlets reported that North Myrtle Beach Public Safety director William Bailey was placed on administrative leave Wednesday after admitting he lied about whether his truck's glove compartment was locked when his gun was stolen last week."

"... Bailey misled officials about how his gun was stored."

"Bailey had told authorities his truck was unlocked but his glove compartment was locked."

"The city released a statement by Bailey in which he took responsibility for the weapon storage and his statement on the glove box. That model truck doesn't have a locking glove compartment."

"The permits were filed Monday with the Alamogordo city clerk's office, then forwarded to ADPS for review because, in addition to being billed as a protest against the health care reform bill that the U.S. Senate approved on Christmas Eve, it also was being called an open-carry event." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. — Justice William O. Douglas, US Supreme Court (1939-75)
